    A Difficult Place

    Lonely Wife Of Workaholic

    I am married to a wonderful man, however he feels he has to work all the time. He owns his own buisness and works from daylight 5am- 8pm 6 days a week and on sunday he does things his sister needs done. He spends more time with his sisters than me and his son.

    Wife In Hell

    Verbal abuse. Or not spoken too really sucks. I'm almost 41 , female. But my friends have all moved or don't come around. I left him. He moved near me. I believe in open marriages if all parties agree. It's called communication.
